Want to be a kid again? This record-breaking stroller can fit two adults
Ever wish you could be a kid again? That wish could now come true thanks to the creation of the largest pram designed for adults.
Chicago-based company owner Tom Koltun and his partner Jamie Roberts initially developed this massive stroller to promote their company's, Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., newest model.
The US pair thought that by allowing parents to test ride the stroller, it would convince them their children would be getting the best when sat in the standard-sized version.
As it turns out, the 1.38-metre (4ft 6.3in) pram happens to be the largest stroller in the world – a record-breaking bonus to the creative idea.
It took eight weeks to craft the giant carrier, most of which was used to make sure the design, safety, practicality and functionality mirrored that of the original product.
Koltun said: "I always loved the Guinness World Records book as a kid, and it’s really exciting to know that I’ll be featured! Being in the baby gear and nursery business, I certainly hadn’t expected to achieve a record in my professional life, but it’s been such a fun experience for our brand. As an added bonus, it definitely gives me some extra cool points with my kids."
The giant teal and black stroller now lives at the company’s headquarters in Illinois, but when it is out and about, people often do a double-take when they first see it.
According to the new titleholders, there’s always a moment of confusion as well as laughs and requests for pictures.
